"Using nuclear weapons could create conditions for decisive results and the restoration of strategic

stability".

“Specifically, the use of a nuclear weapon will fundamentally change the scope of a battle and create conditions that affect how commanders will prevail in conflict.”

"The Joint Chiefs of Staff briefly published and then removed from public access a new edition of their official doctrine on the use of nuclear weapons. But a public copy was preserved."

4. unbelievable...

“Specifically, the use of a nuclear weapon will fundamentally change the scope of a battle and create conditions that affect how commanders will prevail in conflict.”

...that's assuming we'll still be around to do battle and prevail in a future conflict...

...these bastards are itching to use nukes, "...for decisive results and the restoration of strategic stability".

...the earth is large, life will continue but we may not...what makes them think there will be any strategic stability to restore if things escalate?

...unbelievable...

6. i'm going to be cautiously optimistic on this one

the entire release and recall thing might be part of the sabre rattling? negotiation? with iran. "let them think about whats comin' their way" kind of threat?

not really. this attitude will lose us a city. maybe a planet.

11. Yes, this is bluff. DoD is realistic enough to be planning for climate change

They know a nuclear winter will kill us ALL.
Report from Iron Mountain, however, is probably real.
